Powers you never knew superman had: Superman was born in Action Comics #1, in the year 1938, totally changing the superhero game when he arrived on the scene with his spandex and perfectly-chiseled jaw. Since 1938, there is practically no ability this super-alien being has not had. Speed? Check. Invulnerability? Check. Flight? Yeah, let’s throw it in. But there are many other Superman abilities this hero possesses, and they range from weird to even weirder.

When he was first introduced into the comic book world in the 1930s, Superman really didn’t have very many super powers. He had super strength, of course, and his amazing super speed. Even back then, he could leap tall buildings in a single bound. Other than that, Superman really couldn’t do very much. But over the years, Superman got many more abilities. From the 1940s to the 1980s, Superman’s powers began to expand. This is due to the intensity of Earth’s yellow sun, as hardcore comic book fans know, and the weak gravity of the planet. Some of his amazing powers were given and taken away over the years.
Even comic book fans and Superman aficionados don’t know about all these weird, lesser-known Superman abilities that have appeared in the comics over the last seven decades.
10. Microscopic Vision
Everyone knows that Superman has X-ray vision and laser eyes, but it’s not as well-known that he’s also got microscopic and telescopic vision. He can see across great distances, even across space, and get a close-up look at anything he wants to see a little bit more closely.
Superman can actually see things at an atomic level. That is, of course, unless it’s lead. He can also see infrared and ultraviolet light. That means there’s practically nothing Superman can’t see or examine very closely using only his eyes if he wants, and that includes peering into space to take a gander at what’s happening up there.
Taking all that into account, it really doesn’t make much sense that he can’t see through lead, too.
